Athletics Kenya faces revolt over new changes

23 August 2013, 11:11

Nairobi - Athletics Kenya (AK) chief Isaiah Kiplagat is facing a rebellion from council members over changes to the way the federation is run.

AK delegates are challenging the new constitutional changes put in place after the national elections in April.

Delegates are upset as they claim they were not consulted in the hiring of a CEO for the federation and a marketing and communications manager.

"The new constitutional document was heavily doctored to suit an individual's personal interest,"  the delegates said at a news conference on Thursday, attended by 14 of the 16 affliates of the AK, led by the second vice-chairman Paul Mutwii.

"We seek for the reversion of the old constitution because the new one has been falsified from what we passed before the elections. If the issue is not resolved within the next 14 days, we may be forced to call for snap elections," they added.

Kiplagat, who has been at the helm of the federation for the past 21 years, and was re-elected to a new five-year term in April, declined to comment on the matter when contacted by AFP.
